House of Dun

[House of Dun]

The House of Dun is a stunning Georgian stately home situated in pleasant Angus countryside between Brechin and Montrose, not far from the mud flats of Montrose Basin nature reserve. As you'd expect from a National Trust for Scotland property, the house interior is furnished lavishly, with equally beautiful gardens. On a good weather day, let the train take the strain from the Brechin to nearby Bridge of Dun (10 minutes from the House). This makes a nice addition to poking around the town and its cathedral. In fact, you can't really say you've "dun" Brechin without it...
